Rev Dave Bell announces his retirement

At the Palm Sunday service on 14 April, which Dave Bell did not attend because he was unwell,  Rev Ian Smith read a letter from Dave Bell to the congregation in which he stated that he will be retiring from the benefice. The exact date of his retirement has not been finalised but he will let the congregations know when it has been.

Many members of the congregation were surprised and some visibly upset at the announcement.
